St. Mark’s Community Hub  is about connecting people locally and providing a space for that enables local people to mix and make local connections. We focus particularly on older people in the Kingstanding area, which includes the council wards of Kingstanding and Oscott.  There is something happening most days from activity in our building to trips to local places and beyond. You can always expect a warm welcome and we are interested in developing new activities that you would like to take part in.
